Calvert splits at worlds

Carberry’s Braden Calvert split his games at the world junior curling championships on Friday in Flims, Switzerland and still sits one game back of a playoff spot.

Calvert and his team of Kyle Kurz, Lucas Van Den Bosch and Brendan Wilson opened the day by falling behind 4-0 after three end to Scotland’s Kyle Smith in a game they eventually lost 10-5. The Canadian crew, however, bounced back later in the day with a dominating 8-4 victory over China’s Zhilin Shao.

That left Calvert in a four-way tie for sixth place in the 10-team event with a 2-3 record. Scotland is now 3-2, while China dropped to 0-5.

Calvert admitted that he’s been caught off guard by some of the other teams’ strategies.

“It’s definitely challenging,” he said in a press release. “The Canadian championships are tough but at the worlds, there are a lot of different styles of play which is very challenging ... They each have a different game plan so it makes it interesting playing against these different strategies. It’s caught us off guard sometimes.”

Canada will take on Norway’s Eirik Mjoeen (5-0) and Switzerland’s Yannick Schwaller (3-2) today.

Meanwhile, the Canadian women’s team skipped by Alberta’s Kelsey Rocque won both their games on Friday and are tied for second at 4-2.
